Introduction of Contraband:

Anyone attempting to bring or introduce contraband into SCORE jail, will be arrested and prosecuted under RCW 9A.776 (Introducing Contraband I, II, III). The penalty, if you are convicted, ranges from three months in jail to twelve years in prison depending on severity and if you have a criminal record.



Smoking is prohibited inside and outside the building.  This includes visiting booths in the public lobby area.

If you violate this rule, you are subject to a fine and your visit will be stopped.  King County Code prohibits smoking within 25 feet of any doorway entering any public building.


Inmate Phone Contact:

Incoming calls to inmates are not allowed. An inmate may place an outbound call using the inmate telephone service provided through PayTel. Pre-paid accounts can be set up through PayTel to pay for calls placed by an inmate. These pre-paid accounts eliminate the blocked call problems that can occur when a collect call is placed from inside SCORE jail to your phone.
